Behind the Scenes by Judy Toupin…

Who would have thought 14 months later we’d find ourselves still coping with COVID 19 protocols. However, our vaccine roll out has begun and it seems it’s given people a bit of a mental boost!

So let’s all hope for an opening date soon!

Last year we spent a reset season repairing, revamping and refurbishing exhibits. We would like to thank you for your interest in the virtual exhibits that we published on our website.

This year we hope to open the museum to the public and introduce you to new exhibits.


Well, Big Joe finally put his mask on! Join Big Joe and mask up!
Our local bear resident is looking for a name! Thank you for all the entries so far, keep them coming! You are not making it easy for our panel of judges!

Within the next few days we will be launching a new fundraiser to help us update some of our exhibits with interactive technology!

One of our local Blue Sky Stitchers, Diane Gallupe, has donated 2 quilts to be raffled off!

1st prize : Gorgeous extra large queen scrappy quilt with heart pattern, valued at $2,000!
2nd prize : Beautiful lap quilt in brown/gold tones
3rd prize : Museum Logo t-shirt and mask

The quilts will be on display at the Museum.

At this time, raffle tickets will only be available to purchase online, stay tuned.

We will have a new payment method at the museum where we will accept debit/credit cards once we’re open but your ticket will still be generated through the online form. We’re trying to make things as simple and safe as we can.


People continue to ask – what do you miss about the museum when it has to remain closed?

I miss all of you, I miss visiting with real people and sharing our beautiful community museum.

As soon as we know what protocols we have to deal with, we will let you know. Can’t wait to visit with you!
